    we have been going to this lake

    Hello.

    Is this sentence grammatically correct and natural?

    We have been going to this lake since I was a kid.

    Is there a verb other than "go" that I can use?

    Re: we have been going to this lake

    Depending on the length of stay, you could use:

    - visiting this lake ...
    - holidaying at this lake ...
    - taking day trips to this lake ...
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is the original sentence okay?

    Yes. I would have said something if it wasn't.
